The AirLite sample pump is economically designed for personal sampling of asbestos, lead and other airborne contaminants in environments where intrinsic safety is not required. 
Powered by economical, disposable AA alkaline batteries, the AirLite provides run times over 10 hours in the 1000 to 3000 ml/min flow range with full back pressure compensation. 
A patented (U.S. Patent No. 6,741,056) flow control system, automatic features, and internal ambient temperature sensor ensure accurate air volumes and sample integrity. The bright LED indicates pump and battery status. AirLite is small and lightweight for easy attachment to a worker's belt where it won't interfere with worker activity.
The AirLite is not UL Listed for intrinsic safety. 
Flow rate 1000 to 3000 ml/min 
  • Accuracy: ± 5% 
  • Low flow from 5 to 500 ml/min with low flow adapter kit

  • Powered by disposable AA alkaline batteries 
  • No down time for battery charging 
Simple Operation 
  • Just turn on, calibrate, and sample 
  • No battery charging 
  • Easy access battery compartment 
Complete sample integrity 
  • Constant flows up to 3000 ml/min 
  • Compensates flow for changes in back pressure and temperature 
  • Low battery shut-off when battery level too low to maintain compensated flow 
  • LED indicates pump running, restricted flow (flow fault), and low battery 
  • Rugged RFI/EMI-shielded case 
  • User option auto restart flow fault 
  • CE marked
Ideal for sampling asbestos and lead to meet NIOSH methods 
  • Designed for sampling applications that do not require intrinsic safety 
Ideal for emergency response 
  • Ready for immediate use 
  • No down time for battery charging 
  • Easily stored without maintenance 
Compensated Flow Range
1000 to 3000 ml/min, ± 5%
(5 to 500 ml/min requires constant pressure controller (CPC) and adjustable low flow tube holder; Requires 1/4-inch ID tubing 
Flow Control Patented (U.S. Patent No. 6,741,056) system holds constant flow to ± 5% of the set-point
Compensated Range for a Minimum of 8 Hour Operation
1000 ml/min at 30 inches water back pressure
2000 ml/min at 20 inches water back pressure
3000 ml/min at 10 inches water back pressure

Protect sample pump from weather when in use outdoors. 
Compensated Temperature Range
41° to 122°F (5° to 50°C )
Operating Humidity 0 to 95% non-condensing 
Three standard AA alkaline batteries
Rechargeable AA size 1.2-volt NiMH batteries may be used but will provide approximately half the run time stated for disposable batteries. 
LED Functions
Slow flash = normal run
Fast flash = flow fault
Double flash = low battery, approximately one-hour run time remaining
Flash every eight seconds = pump shutdown due to exhausted batteries
Indication of pump shutdown due to exhausted batteries will override all other indicators.
Four flashes every six seconds = pump shutdown due to flow fault
Run Time (new batteries)
8.5 hours at 1 L/min, 25 inches water back pressure
10 hours at 2.5 L/min, 15 inches water back pressure
Tubing Requires 1/4-inch ID tubing
Case Plastic, RFI/EMI-shielded, CE marked
Dimensions 4.6 x 3 x 1.75 in (11.7 x 7.6 x 4.4 cm) includes inlet and belt clip
Weight (includes batteries)
12 oz (340 gm)
Caution: Do not operate AirLite in hazardous or explosive locations. AirLite is designed for applications that do not require intrinsic safety.
